Multiple Joint Replacement Surgery
Say hello to your pain free-future: (805) 706-0062
At Adventist Health Simi Valley, we offer multiple total joint replacement surgery options to individuals who require replacement of both knee and/or hip joints. Undergoing multiple joint replacements at once typically results in lower overall complication rates, a shorter hospital stay and lower total cost than if the replacements were performed separately. Ideal candidates for multiple joint replacement surgery must meet the following criteria:
- Good physical condition.
- No cardiac, pulmonary or vascular diseases.
- Signs of joint damage on x-rays of both joints.
- Severe pain in both joints that interferes with the activities of daily living.
During your multiple joint replacement surgery, our surgeon will remove damaged surfaces of the joint and replace them with metal or plastic implants. Removing the diseased cartilage, or bone, will allow you to enjoy a pain-free future! In addition, this surgery will improve the functionality of your joints.
